CV Horticultural Society talks pollinators at April 18 meeting

Native pollinators and beneficial insects need our help!

Join Comox Valley Horticultural Society’s guest speaker Jennifer Lipka on April 18 to learn about the research on environmental conditions that are affecting pollinators.

The presentation will highlight the different kinds of native bees, wasps and other beneficial insects.

Lipka will share ideas on what to plant and how to help the pollinators thrive in our gardens.

She has worked and studied with Brian Campbell to better the lives of bees around the Lower Mainland. She is currently attending school for Sustainable Geography at UBC.

Lipka was a West Coast Seeds organic garden adviser for almost two years and continues to share her passion for helping people grow gardens organically and to support bee friendly environments

All garden enthusiasts are invited to attend the monthly meetings. There is a $5 fee for non-members.  CVHS meets at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay. The Members’ Plant Sale  begins at 6:30;  the meeting and speaker will follow. Mark April 23 on your calendar-  our annual spring plant sale date.
